parallel universe

Artist Matt W. Moore recently returned from São Paulo where he stayed for one month to prepare for his first South American solo exhibition - from scratch. He arrived with no art, no supplies, and no plan for his new series of paintings. The idea for his work actualized during his stay, as he absorbed the culture and vibrant surroundings of the Brazilian city.

The collection (17 large canvases and a mega mural) was done entirely in spray paint, but appears close to digital with its surprisingly clean details.

Pretty cool, huh.

i so dig murals. i was actually part of our city's art council and helped paint numerous murals. i worked in small areas:) i did not really trust myself to think big.

one year we did a project similiar to this one. it was requested by a dentist on the side of his practice. it turned out soo good. a lot of math went into that one. more than the normal murals:( did not like it all that much. loved the finish project, hated the math!

Beautiful! Spray paint eh? The man has a good hand, it does look like digital! and even three dimensional.
